;; If you plan to use the interface to the TclX help files, you must
;; set the variable tcl-help-directory-list to point to the topmost
;; directories containing the TclX help files.  Eg:
;;   (setq tcl-help-directory-list '("/usr/local/lib/tclx/help"))
;;; Commentary:

;; * tcl-proc-list can be used to customize a list of things that
;; "define" other things.  Eg in my project I put "defvar" in this
;; list.
;; * tcl-typeword-list is similar, but uses font-lock-type-face.
;; * tcl-keyword-list is a list of keywords.  I've generally used this
;; for flow-control words.  Eg I add "unwind_protect" to this list.
;; * tcl-builtin-list lists commands to be given font-lock-builtin-face.
;; * tcl-type-alist can be used to minimally customize indentation
;; according to context.

;; * In Tcl "#" is not always a comment character.  This can confuse tcl.el
;;   in certain circumstances.  For now the only workaround is to use
;;   font-lock which will mark the # chars accordingly or enclose offending
;;   hash characters in quotes or precede them with a backslash.  Note that
;;   using braces won't work -- quotes change the syntax class of characters
;;   between them, while braces do not.  If you don't use font-lock, the
;;   electric-# mode helps alleviate this problem somewhat.
;; * indent-tcl-exp is untested.

;; TODO:
;; * make add-log-tcl-defun smarter.  should notice if we are in the
;;   middle of a defun, or between defuns.  should notice if point is
;;   on first line of defun (or maybe even in comments before defun).
;; * Allow continuation lines to be indented under the first argument
;;   of the preceding line, like this:
;;      [list something \
;;            something-else]
;; * There is a request that indentation work like this:
;;        button .fred -label Fred \
;;                     -command {puts fred}
;; * Should have tcl-complete-symbol that queries the inferior process.
;; * Should have describe-symbol that works by sending the magic
;;   command to a tclX process.
;; * Need C-x C-e binding (tcl-eval-last-exp).
;; * Write indent-region function that is faster than indenting each
;;   line individually.
;; * tcl-figure-type should stop at "beginning of line" (only ws
;;   before point, and no "\" on previous line).  (see tcl-real-command-p).
;; * overrides some comint keybindings; fix.
;; * Trailing \ will eat blank lines.  Should deal with this.
;;   (this would help catch some potential bugs).
;; * Inferior should display in half the screen, not the whole screen.
;; * Indentation should deal with "switch".
;; * Consider writing code to find help files automatically (for
;;   common cases).
;; * `#' shouldn't insert `\#' when point is in string.

To run multiple Tcl processes, you start the first up with
\\[inferior-tcl].  It will be in a buffer named `*inferior-tcl*'.
Rename this buffer with \\[rename-buffer].  You may now start up a new
process with another \\[inferior-tcl].  It will be in a new buffer,
named `*inferior-tcl*'.  You can switch between the different process
buffers with \\[switch-to-buffer].

Commands that send text from source buffers to Tcl processes -- like
`tcl-eval-defun' or `tcl-load-file' -- have to choose a process to
send to, when you have more than one Tcl process around.  This is
determined by the global variable `inferior-tcl-buffer'.  Suppose you
have three inferior Lisps running:
    Buffer              Process
    foo                 inferior-tcl
    bar                 inferior-tcl<2>
    *inferior-tcl*      inferior-tcl<3>
If you do a \\[tcl-eval-defun] command on some Lisp source code, what
process do you send it to?

- If you're in a process buffer (foo, bar, or *inferior-tcl*),
  you send it to that process.
- If you're in some other buffer (e.g., a source file), you
  send it to the process attached to buffer `inferior-tcl-buffer'.
This process selection is performed by function `inferior-tcl-proc'.

Whenever \\[inferior-tcl] fires up a new process, it resets
`inferior-tcl-buffer' to be the new process's buffer.  If you only run
one process, this does the right thing.  If you run multiple
processes, you can change `inferior-tcl-buffer' to another process
buffer with \\[set-variable].")
